The Michigan State Spartans should be plenty rested coming off a bye week, and they are looking to start their season 3-0. Michigan State will host Brian Kelly and his Notre Dame team in primetime on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on FOX (live stream it on NBCSports.com).
This rivalry game marks the 79th time these teams have met and will be the last “Battle for the Megaphone” until 2026. Both teams are clawing back from embarrassing 2016 seasons — yep, Notre Dame went 4-8, but Michigan State was worse — and a rivalry win will be a big momentum boost heading into the tougher parts of their schedules.
The Spartans came away with the win last year in South Bend, but Kelly has sort of mellowed out and has a promising young quarterback who has led the team to a 2-1 start. Michigan State will have to contain the run game, by both the running backs and quarterback Brandon Wimbush. The junior quarterback had himself a day last week against Boston College, rushing for 207 yards and four touchdowns, averaging nearly 10 yards a carry.
